MOST Policy Research Tool

Immediately following UNESCO’s 34th General Conference, which re-affirmed the importance of creating the conditions for a genuine dialogue between researchers, policy-makers and the members of civil society, the server developed under the aegis of the MOST Programme offers free and customized access to policy-relevant material (case studies) according to specific locations (city, country, region) and/or themes related to social transformations (urbanization, migration phenomena, human rights, sustainable development, etc.).

The tool will be gradually enriched by research from around the globe, notably through the network of UNESCO Chairs in social and human sciences.

It is available in English, French and Spanish.
